I provide a platform for quality continuing education for English-language writers in Jerusalem. Writers will be able to hone areas of their choosing, building a program that is tailored to their needs. Visiting and local authors are invited to come and teach classes in their areas of expertise. I am open to all genres: fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, screenwriting, playwriting, children's literature, young adult, and hybrid.
The concept is simple. If enough people are interested in a seminar or workshop, I will run it. I am responsive to requests. Tell me what you'd like to learn about, and I'll track down an expert to teach you. If you prefer private lessons or mentoring, I'll be happy to find you the right instructor, and when it comes to editing your completed manuscript, I'd be happy to put you in touch with the best editor for your style of writing.
